Check out the Learning Common’s newest exhibit on the 1st Floor of Bird Library: “ParaHuman Books.” The second display in a three-part series, the selection of books illustrates examples of bizarre human conditions, such as clairvoyance, communication with the dead, out-of-body travel, telekinesis, and possession by the devil. Mainstream fascination with extraordinary powers of the mind and body were at their peak from the late 1960s through the 1970s, but by the 1980s public fascination with the fringe had shifted to aliens and abductions. Curated by Stephen Singer, the exhibit is on display from August 1 through August 31.

This event was published on August 5, 2019.
